Attorney General Van Hollen Meets With Richland County Leaders At Law Enforcement Roundtable Hosted By State Senator Dale Schultz, State Representative Lee Nerison And State Representative Ed Brooks


 RICHLAND CENTER - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen met today with law enforcement leaders, elected officials, community leaders, judges, and public safety officials from throughout Richland County at a law enforcement roundtable. Also participating in today's law enforcement roundtable were State Senator Dale Schultz, State Representative Lee Nerison and State Representative Ed Brooks. 


 Topics discussed at the roundtable included HR 218, Internet Crimes Against Children and the dangers of the internet, drunk driving, and concerns about the level of funding for public safety.


 "I would like to extend a thank you to Senator Schultz, Representative Nerison and Representative Brooks for organizing this successful roundtable. Each county has public safety issues that specifically affect them. While many of these issues affect the entire state, it is important for me to understand how the Department of Justice can assist Richland County," Van Hollen said.


 "Events like these are excellent opportunities for local law enforcement to share with me and other state officials the public safety and law enforcement concerns in their community - and how the state officials and lawmakers can assist," said Van Hollen.


 "I thank Sen. Schultz, Rep. Nerison and Rep. Brooks for attending and helping to put together this roundtable," said Van Hollen. "These discussions help us in state government do a better job."
